Leeds Older People Forum


The Leeds Older People’s Forum was established in March 1994 and has grown to a citywide membership of over 100 voluntary sector organisations working with older people across Leeds, including the Neighbourhood Network Schemes. The aim of the Forum is to promote the well-being of all older people in the city of Leeds, and to give a more powerful voice to older people in shaping their city for the benefit of all its citizens.


Leeds Older People’s Forum does this by:

·  Representing older people’s views, needs and aspirations

·  Enabling older people’s organisations to participate fully in policy discussion and development

·  Enabling and sustaining good communication between individuals, groups and public, private and voluntary sector organisations.

·  Supporting projects to enhance the wellbeing of older people in Leeds

·  Ensuring Leeds Older People’s Forum is an effective and well-run organisation.
